Avengers 4 is not even close to be relased yet, but it’s one of the most expected films right now.
When the project was originally announced, it was called The Avengers: Infinity War 2, but when Joe and Anthony Russo were set to direct it, the film was suddenly transformed into a whole different movie, with no title yet. Why is that?
Well, according to Marvel Studio’s president, Kevin Feige, the film has not revealed its title yet, because it’s basically a big spoiler about the events to occur in The Avengers: Infinity War, but also about how different will be the MCU after that particular film.
That statement reminds me of another thing Feige said in an interview with Collider, which bassically is that the MCU is not going to a “Phase 4”, but maybe towards a “new thing”:
“We’ve been lucky that [contract expirations] haven’t factored in too much. We’ve had people under contract for certain films, then we’ve had new ideas and new directions like Civil War like we wanted to do, and we’ve been lucky enough to make new contracts. Or Spider-Man: Homecoming, the cast has been awesome in their enthusiasm for the direction and the storylines that we’ve been telling. So it really does, right now, all start with where we wanna take the stories. Certainly as we get to Infinity War there is a sense of a climax if not a conclusion to, by the time we’re at untitled Avengers 4, the 22 movies that will have encompassed the first three phases of the MCU. And what happens after that will be very different. I don’t know if it’s Phase 4, it might be a new thing.”
So, what is this all about? A reinvention? A new heroes generation to replace The Avengers? We don’t know yet, but we’ll be expecting for some details.
